How To Add Groovy To Discord Group
Are you a Discord user looking for a way to enhance your server’s audio experience? Look no further than Groovy, a feature-packed Discord bot that adds music streaming capabilities to your server. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of adding Groovy to your Discord group, along with some FAQs at the end to help troubleshoot any issues you may encounter.
Step 1 – Invite Groovy to Your Discord Group
The first step to adding Groovy to your Discord group is inviting the bot. To do this, follow these simple steps:
1. Visit groovy.bot in your web browser
2. Click on the “Add to Discord” button
3. Login to your Discord account (if prompted)
4. Select the Discord group you want to add Groovy to
5. Click “Authorize”
And that’s it! Groovy should now be added to your Discord group, and you can start using its features right away.
Step 2 – Configure Groovy’s Settings
Once Groovy has been added to your Discord group, you’ll want to configure its settings to ensure that it behaves the way you want it to. Here are some of the most important settings you’ll want to pay attention to:
The prefix is the character that you use to activate Groovy’s commands. By default, the prefix is “!”. You can change this by using the following command:
!prefix <new prefix>
Replace “<new prefix>” with the character you want to use as the prefix (e.g. “?”, “-“, etc.)
Groovy’s default volume is 50%, but you can adjust this to suit your needs. Here’s how:
!volume <new volume>
Replace “<new volume>” with the volume you want to set (e.g. 75%, 100%, etc.)
By default, Groovy’s queue limit is set to 100 songs. If you want to limit the number of songs that can be added to the queue, you can use the following command:
!queue <new limit>
Replace “<new limit>” with the maximum number of songs you want to allow in the queue (e.g. 50, 75, etc.)
Step 3 – Start Playing Music
Now that Groovy is configured, it’s time to start playing some music! Here are some basic commands to get you started:
!play <song name or URL>
Replace “<song name or URL>” with the name of the song you want to play, or the URL of the video you want to play the audio from.
This command skips the currently playing song.
This command pauses the currently playing song.
This command resumes the paused song.
Q: Why isn’t Groovy responding to my commands?
A: Firstly, check that Groovy is still in your Discord group. If it is, ensure that you’re using the correct prefix (default: “!”). If you’ve changed the prefix, make sure you’re using the new prefix. Finally, double-check that you’re typing the command correctly.
Q: Why isn’t Groovy playing any music?
A: Check that Groovy is in a voice channel with you. Also, ensure that the volume isn’t set to 0%. If Groovy is playing music, but you’re not hearing anything, check that your device’s audio is turned on and that the volume isn’t muted.
Q: How do I get Groovy to play a specific part of a song?
A: Use the following command:
!play <song name or URL> <start time> <end time>
Replace “<start time>” and “<end time>” with the timestamps (in seconds) of the section of the song you want to play. For example, if you want to play a song from 1 minute and 30 seconds to 2 minutes and 45 seconds, the command would look like this:
!play <song name or URL> 90 165
Q: How can I limit who can use Groovy’s commands?
A: You can restrict who can use Groovy’s commands by configuring the permissions for the Groovy role. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click on the server settings (the gear icon)
2. Click on the “Roles” tab
3. Locate the Groovy role, and click on the three dots beside it
4. Click on “Permissions”
5. Under the “General Permissions” section, toggle off the “Use External Emojis” and “Add Reactions” options. This limits who can use Groovy’s commands to those with the Groovy role.
